Marco Rubio might still support Donald Trump, but not what he is saying.
During the first of two Florida Senate debates, Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Patrick Murphy took several jabs at each other’s records and personal leanings. But the person taking the most punches was, yep, you guessed it, Donald Trump. Murphy wasted no time calling Rubio out for his sustained support of Trump even after the leaked “Access Hollywood” tapes. Rubio was then left having to explain, very delicately, how he can support Trump for president without defending anything he is saying. But the true moment of clarity came when both candidates were asked about whether or not the election was rigged, as Trump continues to allege. Rubio was quick to call Trump out on his lack of knowledge of the political problem.
This election is not being rigged and I’ll explain to you why it’s not being rigged in Florida,” Rubio said during the debate. “And why I hope he stops saying that; why he should stop saying that. We have 67 counties in this state, each of which conduct their own elections. I promise you there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election.
So there you have it. Not even Marco Rubio believes that this election will be rigged. At least for now. You know how he likes to change his mind on things.
